The dead infant boy found among dirty laundry and hauled from St. Paul by a cleaning service to Red Wing, Minn., came from the Regions Hospital morgue and was stillborn late in the second trimester nearly two weeks ago, authorities said Wednesday.
Red Wing police added there is no indication of foul play in connection with the discovery Tuesday by Crothall Laundry workers of the remains of the boy, who was stillborn 45 miles to the north on April 4.

The level of crassness the nation has fallen to is apalling.
We are racing headlong, downslope to the lowest common denominator.
I have worked in a hospital laundry, and we found unspeakable things in the linen, the washers and the small drains. By the same token, no laundry sat in the soiled area more than 2 days before processing. This body was missing for 2 weeks?
This is a simple error, not some evil plot. How many times have surgeons left tools inside patients? This is an unfortunate corollary.
